We were late to fencing tonight. Note to self: don't do that.

My knee is sore from missing some of the opening stretches and warmups.

We didn't use the jumping that we learned last week, but we learned to disengage from a block and touch from the other direction. That is, the rest of the class learned it, after Critter had been doing it naturally against me. That kid is fast.

And tall. On the way home, we picked up two new pairs of pants for Mr. Skinned Knees and Barefoot, who was down to one pair of school pants that were acceptable. Since we were in that department, Critter also asked for another pair of jeans and a pair of khakis. He runs leans on clothes - he currently as two pair of pants that fit. So it was a reasonable request. Except we were in Wal-Mart, not the Tall Mens Shop. We could find a pair of 32x34 jeans, but there were no 32x34 khakis to be found. Yes, my son is all legs. ;)

Bath now. Body sore.

Oh, and Tigger's cookbook has an amazingly easy recipe for shortbread. We made stainglass cookies tonight and learned: (a) don't mix the colors and (b) don't over-fill the holes. We didn't make them for the equinox, so Tigger wants to make them for Daylight Savings. Which ought to be interesting, since it starts while we're away on Spring Break, according to this nifty page I just found. If we're packed early enough for the trip, we could make them the night before we leave, and bring them to eat on Sunday.
